Eupatorium maculatum with its wonderful pink flowers rising well above the green foliage is a real stunner in the garden. This is a moisture loving plant, although it is really a fairly tough customer. Flowering late in summer consider it for any position in the garden border where you require some height.
Look for the cultivar Eupatorium maculatum ‘Gateway’ for the largest flowers on a slightly shorter plant.
It is frost hardy and can be pruned right back after flowering. A tendency to ‘self seed’ however it really is not a problem, just pull out any unwanted pants as they appear
Propagation is from seed or by division of established clumps.
